Federal election 2019: October 21

ACTRA is campaigning to Keep Canada on our Screens and we need your help. Our $9 billion film and television industry makes a significant contribution to Canada’s economy. It’s more important than ever all levels of Canadian government understand, recognize and support our industry. This election website has all you need to know so you can play an active role in guiding the direction of our country for the next four years.

A message from your President

The federal election is around the corner and we’re asking ACTRA members to make their voices heard – and the best way to do this in an election year is on a local level. Just Ask your local candidates if they and their party support a strong film and television sector. Just Ask them where they stand on investment in Canadian content production. And, most importantly, make sure to get out and vote on October 21!
